Save Your Marriage From The Bane of Infertility
Isn't it ironic that as ladies grow older into full maturity, getting pregnant changes from being their greatest fear into the most burning desire? Having a baby seems like the most desirable accomplishment in the world for women; but sadly, many ladies who really want it suddenly discover that for whatever reason, they just can't get pregnant.
About 1 in 7 couples have been reported to have some problems conceiving a baby. However, over 8 in 10 couples having regular sex (every two to three days) will conceive within one year of trying if the woman is aged less than 40 years. In addition, of those couples who do not conceive in the first year, only about half will do so in the second year of trying, leaving a huge number of pregnancy desiring women unable to get pregnant.
There are different causes of infertility, both in men and in women. Nonetheless, there has been no cause found in about 3 in 10 cases. In around 4 out of 10 cases, disorders are found in both the man and the woman.
Infertility means complication in conceiving (becoming pregnant) in spite of having regular sex when not using contraception. There is no definite margin to say when a couple is infertile. For a lot of couples it takes them several months to conceive. About 84 couples out of 100 conceive within a year of trying. About 92 couples out of 100 conceive within two years. So, doctors usually conclude that a couple is infertile if they have not conceived in two years, even with having regular sexual intercourse.
From the 28th of October to the 3rd of November, the international community celebrates the National Infertility Awareness week, with the aim of:
• Highlighting the extent and impact infertility has on people’s lives
• Explaining what options exist for people struggling to conceive
• Changing conversation and get more people talking about infertility
There is the need to raise people's level of understanding of infertility. There must be a change from the debilitating emotional impact and the overwhelming feelings of sadness, helplessness and grief, to the important fact that this is a medical condition and not something to be ashamed of!
Infertility could be as a result of various factors discussed below.
1. Age: When it comes to fertility, age matters. Many people today wait until they're older to have children. But fertility declines over time, so this should be considered if you plan to have children later. Both women and men are at their most fertile state in their early twenties.
2. Sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia and gonorrhoea, can damage a woman's fallopian tubes, which may make it more difficult to become pregnant.
3. Stress: If the male or the female partner is stressed, this can affect libido and how often the couple have sex.
4. “Women who smoke 20 cigarettes a day experience the menopause on average two years earlier,” says Professor Ledger. Men who smoke risk damaging their sperm.
5. Drinking: Women trying to get pregnant can reduce the risk of harming a developing baby by not drinking to excess and drinking no more than one or two units of alcohol once or twice a week. Men who exceed three to four units a day may damage their sperm.
6. Radiation and dangerous chemicals: Exposure to radiation and chemicals such as glycol ester, found in some paints, can damage fertility.
We also want to encourage people to think about their own fertility, the best time to start planning a family, the time it can take to conceive and the help available when natural conception just isn't an option.
One of the most challenging aspects of the infertility experience is dealing with the emotional ups and downs relating to medical treatment, the uncertainty about outcomes, and the challenge of having to make important decisions such as when “enough is enough.“
It is important to learn how to take care of yourself, make sure you get the support you need to manage your emotions so that your self-esteem and outlook on life remains as positive as possible.
